In this month’s IP Literature Watch we include a piece empirically studying the US antitrust case against Xerox; a paper examining the challenges and implications surrounding copyright in the context of generative AI; a paper documenting that monetary policy has a substantial impact on innovation activities; a study examining the direction of business transformation based on technological capacity through an analysis of patent data; a paper formulating a growth model of the data economy, highlighting data’s dual role as a business optimization tool and a cybercrime target; an article using examples from machine learning to demonstrate that the design choices matter even for cases where the legal questions do not involve technology directly; an article arguing that trade secrecy does indeed possess a neglected doctrine of original acquisition; a chapter presenting a general overview of American copyright protection for clothing and fashion, describing the ample protection US copyright offers two-dimensional designs; and a paper studying whether climate-related innovation leads to carbon emission reductions by analyzing supply chain networks.
